BBS Documentary Interview Collection: John Sheetz


Published 2005


Interview with John Sheetz for BBS: The Documentary. Conducted on March 22nd, 2003 in New Providence, New Jersey. Discussions center around teletype art and the use of Ham Radio to transfer text-based images. Techniques in creating RTTY art, the process of transferring artwork over Ham Radio, and some occasional copyright issues are all covered. Speculations on the future of the art, as well as what other skills Mr. Sheetz picked up in the medium. Sadly, Mr. Sheetz passed away in January of 2005, and was not able to see the final product or this interview; this work is dedicated to his memory.

Subject: Very Interesting
I really enjoyed this. I think anyone who has spent alot of time being fascinated by technology will appreciate Mr. Sheetz's insights into the world before information was so easily converted and sent around the world. I found this page with a good history of baudot art: http://www.acid.org/info/mirror/jgs/history.html
There are links to pages with Don Royer art and other interesting stuff.
